      It’s time to accept that the age of constant upgrades is over. Your modern CPU offers nothing over a decade old CPU. Progress has stalled and caring about percentage point gains is a meaningless waste of money.

      2500K is already out of date friend. It’ll not be long until mainstream applications require AVX2 support, but current and upcoming security standards already make your platform completely obsolete.
      Low-end, modern CPUs spank the crap of that aging 2500K. Your motherboard is going to going the biting the dust

          Planned obsolescence has been built from the start. Your old-ass 2500K is no exception. You’ll rage hard and be all "sour grapes" when some upcoming mainstream app that you want to use cannot run on your old-ass 2500K.
          2500K already cannot do any serious professional workload that requires heavy computing power.

            Oh look, the Graphic Designer™ who does Heavy Video Editing™ and Physics Simulations™ spends all day on LULZ bashing the owners of never obsolete CPUs. Bit weird don’t you think?

              Can’t hear you over my massive computing power and shit-postting on a mongolian basket-waving board has trivial overhead. Your old-ass 2500K struggles when you throw any modern game at it while trying to do sort of multi-tasking.
              You will never be a women. That fate was decided by your daddy’s gametes.

        Yep, 6-7 series-era motherboards are going to start running into longevity issues. Getting a replacement board makes little fiscal sense and it simply cheaper/easier to upgrade to a low-end platform that easily outpaces it.

          This really grinds my gears. I have an older system with a i5-4690 that will do most things just fine, but the motherboard is bonked up and turning it on is a whole ordeal. Replacing the motherboard casts like 60% of what I would get if I sold the damn thing if it still worker perfectly. Really annoying, but it’s not like I can do anything with that CPU without the motherboard.

      I would still be using my FX8350 but either the motherboard or cpu itself dies, and it’s hard as fuck to find a AM3+ mobo for a reasonable price outside of aliexpress. So I just ordered a i3 10100f and the cheapest Asrock mobo possible

      2500K is definitely showing it’s age for a lot of tasks. Good thing you can upgrade to an i7/Xeon for very cheap.

      The 2500K was dethroned and deprecated in 2019.

        This. Paired with a B450 motherboard, 32gb of DDR4 3600 CL16, and an RX 5700XT, you won’t need to upgrade again for another decade.00kdn

          32gb ram is a waste, 16gb is enough.

            For now 16gb might be enough. But I don’t want to upgrade for another decade. It is called future proofing and it is what all the gigachads are doing these days

      agreed, we’re probably at a stage with digital hardware where we were with analog tech in the 70s/80s
      from here on out it’s just going to be cost optimizations and slowly but steadily declining quality

      I’m literally still on a PC with an i7 920 on it and still don’t see the need to upgrade it. I shitpost and play games on a 1440p/165hz monitor just fine

        >poorscrote cope
        I have $6 million in savings between all of my retirement accounts. I accomplished this by driving a 2003 Camry, Keeping the same 46” 1080p Vizio 3D TV since 2010. Paying off my 15 year mortgage early. And by not consuming the latest tech gimmicks. I also pirate everything and don’t spend a penny on media.
